Keep it Simple Sister

Hey!

How are those Christmas preparations going? Did I hear some groans? Didn't we all agree not to stress? We said we would enjoy the little pleasures of the season, didn't we? I know, it's a work in progress! And it might require a spiked eggnog! ;)

Well, this morning I started on my to-do list and began wrapping some presents. I reminded myself to keep it simple, that wrapping pretty gifts shouldn't take an entire day! And guess what? The first one I wrapped was so quick, easy and inexpensive, I had to share it with you!


Isn't it cute? The materials I used to wrap this little gift were all at my fingertips. The little box was recycled from last year, the Kraft wrapping papper was the center of a roll of gift wrap, the owl was colored months back when I was practicing with Copic Markers. The Kraft tag is from Martha Stewart, purchased at least a year ago, the twine and rub-ons from Doodlebug, don't we all have loads of twine and rub-ons in our stash? Lastly, that sweet little doily, I acquired long ago from a local vintage shop.


Quick and easy and nothing to buy! Gotta love it! I'll be done with my gift wrapping in no time if I can keep it simple and use things I lready have!

Hope your holiday preparations are going well, and those of you who have it all done...please let me in on your secrets! ;)
